2 former Oklahoma lawmakers appointed to USDA positions

"These state directors will help ensure that USDA is offering the best customer service to our farmers, ranchers, foresters and agricultural producers across the country", Perdue said in a press release.

Allen will work with the USDA and the administration to increase rural prosperity and enhance customer service in MI, the release states. Carlson has served almost eight years as the State Director of USDA Rural Development and was previously a member of the North Dakota House of Representatives.

The U.S.D.A. announced Saturday that former Rep. Scott Biggs of Chickasha was appointed by President Donald Trump as Farm Service Agency state director and Lee Denney of Cushing was named Rural Development state director. He also served in the Michigan Army National Guard and served as a senior policy adviser for the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency. A rural small business owner, Allen attended Northwestern Michigan College and then transferred to Miami University of OH, earning a Bachelor's degree in finance. And understanding that we live in a global economy where trade is of top importance, Secretary Perdue has pledged to be an unapologetic advocate for American agriculture. Gross is now the Economic Development Director for the Lake Area Improvement Corporation in Madison.
